    I had a Newcastle Sherwood amp with a simliar model number to that. The noise floor was very high, seperation was poor, all in all a very poor receiver. If you have a little patience you should be able to pick up similar speakers with something like an entry level Marantz receiver for not much more money which I think will sound a lot better.

    Hi Mylo

    What would you recommend offering for the speakers alone?

    Cheers,
